Galaxy S6 Active appears in Samsung Plus listing

It appears the life-proof version of the Samsung Galaxy S6 has been all-but-confirmed in a Samsung product list.

Amid various rumours and leaked images the device has been spotted in a leaked document showing the Samsung devices eligible to receive Samsung Plus points – the South Korean company’s take on reward points.

The document clearly shows a ‘Galaxy S6 Active’ listed alongside the standard Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 Edge, though it also suggests that the rugged device was released on April 10, which was never the case.

We’re expecting the device to launch with almost all of the same features as the standard Galaxy S6, such as the octa-core Exynos 7420 chip, 3GB RAM, heart-rate sensor and qHD screen, with the added bonus of a 3,600mAh battery and a tougher design, which will include water-proofing, dust-proofing and protection from drops and knocks.

The device is also expected to ship with a 16-megapixel primary camera and 5-megapixel secondary, so you will (hopefully) be able to snap some half-decent underwater shots, too.

Rumours point to the device launching initially on America’s AT&T network before making its way out to the rest of the world after a period of exclusivity.

We had an inkling that Samsung would be releasing a Galaxy S6 Active since the company said the standard Galaxy S6 would not be receiving any tough features, so it’s hardly surprising an Active version is looking certain.

Of course, the document could be a fake and until Samsung says otherwise we are holding our breath just that little bit longer. We’ll keep our peepers open for more on the Galaxy S6 Active as and when it emerges.
